Living in an Alternate Universe?

If you haven't heard the buzz about S.E. Hall's New Adult Erotica, you might possibly live in a universe that doesn't include indie novelists, Facebook chatter, and steamy sex. Is that even possible?

Okay, let me backup and rethink this. Maybe not everyone enjoys romantic couples and smoking hot sex like I do. But... if you do...Pretty Instinct belongs on your TBR.

****** You saw it here first! ******


The pen tickled her skin, leaving behind inked notes and lyrics. She wanted to cry, but didn't. He was the most extraordinary man she'd ever met and with each sketch of his pen, each new ink blot that he skillfully crafted on her flesh, she fell deeper and harder then she could've ever imagined. He was masculine yet soft, aggressive yet pliable. Hard work left his hands calloused, yet each stroke of the pen was precise and swift.

And then he sang without playing as he continued to compose on her skin. Hands down, no comparison, it was the most sensual moment of her adult life.

As he shaded notes and wrote lyrics, her arousal heightened until her nipples were hard. If she thought her well of lust had run dry, she was mistaken. It pooled between her legs and if the growing size of his erection was any indication, he was just as turned on by their artistic moment as she was.

He picked and strummed the strings of her heart as capably as he handled his instrument.

When the music died, he nodded approval. "You inspire me," he said.

"If that's what this is, I'll always aspire to inspire you," she whispered.

5 Fun Facts

5 Fun Facts

I was asked for an author bio so here ya go.

Missy Leigh Bio

It's just crazy weird to talk about myself in third person so I'll keep it real with fun facts.
Things you may or may not want to know:
1.) I live in small town Texas but wish the town was smaller.
2.) If you can make me laugh I'm a friend for life.
3.) I also write under other pen names according to genre.
4.) I'm in love with the ide...a of love but think sex is easier.
5.) I'm a Scorpio.

That's me in a nutshell. No fanfare, no upsell, just keeping it real.

Erotica inspired by true events? Just 14 days!!!

Just 14 Days!!!


Because it's inspired by true events, research for The Net pulled me into a world of rejection, deception, betrayal, self-discovery, and acceptance. Writing the story was enough to make me question what was real, what wasn't, and just how resilient people can be when forced to find creative ways to keep their independence.

The Net is finally scheduled to release 3/15/14. And yes, the 15th is a full moon so mark your calendars and stock up on the wine!

Small Town Book Stores.

There aren't too many small town book stores left. When you find one, you want to inhale the pages like a crack addict sucks his pipe. Though crack is common, books stores that have paper pages on the shelves, aren't.
As an Indie author who loves controlling everything from content to cover to marketing, I've learned that authors do what they do because they don't have other options. Not everyone can be traditionally published and there are many established authors who weren't traditionally published until after they made their name in the digital world.
Creative writing either burns through the artists' fingers and turns into words that touch humanity on a basic level, or it remains in their heads, making them crazy. Writers must write. With that said, book lovers must share their love of books. There are few people who need to inhale the scent of ink and freshly cut paper in order to survive. They're a dying breed of book lovers that'll never be replaced because they're the few that understand what it takes to create the art, create the pages, create the print, and in the end...create the magic.
My love, my heart, and my appreciation goes out to one of the few remaining independently owned bookstores I know of.
RedRockBooks thank you for remaining true and thank you for supporting me!

Row Your Own Boat!


Row Your Own Damn Boat!

I'm sure you know the "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," song, right? The one you sang as a child and sang to your children. It has something to do with rowing your boat gently and merrily down the stream?

Well, for some random reason, it popped in my head and now it's stuck there. Anyway, I got to thinking. (True to popular belief, fictional writers are strange creatures who sit at book and coffee cup covered desks all day. We use the time thinking up strange and bizarre things to write, even though the majority of those random thoughts never make it to the page because most of the crazy stuff we conjure up has absolutely nothing to do with anything.) Anyway, back to the quirky little boat song.
After all this time, it dawned on me. If I'm forced to row a boat (face it, not all of us are cut out to be on an Olympic rowing team) that means:

A.) I forgot to charge the battery,
B.) I forgot to put fuel in the motor, or
C.) The motor went out.

Regardless of the reason, I don't think I'd be rowing gently or merrily. So, the next time you get a wild hair and decide to go boating, let the oars serve as a reminder to check items A-C because no one wants to hear your revamped version of a classic song. ~ ML Stephens

The Second Half

The Second Half

Based on a true story.

My daughter and her friends were discussing books.
One friend says, "Speaking of books, my mom's reading one and won't pull her head out of her laptop long enough to do anything else."
Misty: "What's she reading?"
Friend: "I think it's called Butt Assets."
Misty: "Do you mean Bare Assets?" (At this point, I'm laughing so hard, I nearly pee my pants. I can't imagine what must be going through this child's mind. But let's face it...Butt Assets? What a great erotica title.) Bahaha. Anyway, on with the story.
Misty's friend: "Bare Assets! That's the name of it! How'd you know?"
Misty: "Because my mom wrote it." (Now, I can only imagine what's going through my daughter's mind and the minds of all the girls who are still stuck on the Butt Assets title. After all, my mind's still stuck on it. Isn't yours?)
Friend: "Are you serious? Your mom wrote that? Well, tell your mom that my mom was too busy to cook this weekend because she was reading your mom's book."
Misty: "I know what you mean. My mom's face is usually stuck in the computer too. We eat lots of pizza at my place."

Moral of the story: Our children only hear half of what we say. In this story, Bare Assets became Butt Assets. Does that mean, "Clean your room, " becomes "Destroy your room?" Think about it. Should the first half of anything we say be the last half? Is that what copy editing is all about? All I know is I should reevaluate the meal plan and toss in a bucket of chicken from time to time and really kick the menu up a notch.  ~ M. L. Stephens

Speak Your Mind!!
If you want sweetly, packaged romance...this page isn't for you. This page is for those that read and appreciate most genres...most notably erotica. If we're sitting side by side on a bar stool and I use the word asshole to describe a man (or woman) that is an asshole, and you get offended...this page or writing isn't for you. If you don't like RAW, adult consensual sex (whether it's in the vagina, between the tits, in the ass or whatever...) Not your page. This page and what I'm writing in The Net isn't sugar coated. It's RAW! Like it, love it or leave it because Missy Leigh's upcoming debut is the hard core truth.
